An airdate for It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia season 15 has not yet been confirmed.
“Well, we actually do have an episode called ‘The Gang Gets Quarantined’'[season nine, episode seven] where we quarantine ourselves in the bar,” he said when asked what a quarantine-themed episode could look like. “I think there’s a big flu going around Philadelphia or something like that.”
He added: “When we come back, don’t worry, we will address all this in the way only Sunny can!”
In the same interview, Rob McElhenney expressed his hopes for the show to run “forever”. “If people keep watching it and we keep having fun, why would we ever stop? It’s my dream job,” he said.
